He also probed Mr Mehmet as to whether the UK should also reevaluate the overreach of the European Court of Human Rights in proceedings.

“That is huge! How on earth are we able to cope?”
Almost 28,000 migrants have arrived in Britain this year alone after crossing the English Channel in small boats, dwarfing the 8,400 that crossed in 2020.
